Westminster crash suspect appears in court

Salih Khater was charged with two counts of attempted murder following the incident last week, but has not been charged under the terrorism legislation he was initially arrested under.

Salih Khater, 29, will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court today after he sparked fresh terror fears when he allegedly drove his auto into a crowd outside the London landmark.

He wore a grey T-shirt and white pants as he was read the charges of the attempted murder of members of the public and the attempted murder of police officers at London's Westminster Magistrates court.

Salih Khater, 29, allegedly drove his silver Ford Fiesta into cyclists and pedestrians before swerving towards police officers and crashing into a security barrier.

Police quickly confirmed no one had died in the incident, but that one person was treated for serious injuries.

Police have said that they are treating the case as terrorism, due to the method, location and alleged targets.

His lawyer, Johanna Quinn, made no application for bail and Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot remanded Khater in custody. Judge Emma Arbuthnot said he would held in custody before appearing in front of the Old Bailey on August 31.

Khater was granted British citizenship just six weeks earlier, having arrived in the United Kingdom as an asylum seeker in 2010.
